Just coming in here to enunciate how incredibly AWESOME the soundtrack of Midnight Club L.A. is. Is there anyone out there who goes along with me?
It's still so much fun to play this game. Probably one of the best Arcade Racing Games of all times.

Soundtrack and the best arcade car handling. I don't even like arcade car handling but this game is great at it.

The reason "arcade" handling is usually seen as bad, is because developers tend to do half-assed dumbed down handling, like GTAV, Saints Row, recent NFS games, Sleeping Dogs etc. and then just waltz around calling it "wow arcade".

So nowadays, we just hear "arcade" and think "half-arsed"

MCLA is a game that pulls off arcade handling properly. When you're driving a supercar at high speed, you do feel like you can mess up and that it'll cost you the race. If a game's handling doesn't have that, then it's doing it wrong. Manual gears, different cars having different weight etc. make it high-quality arcade handling for me.

Yeah, GTA V should've used this games car handling, braking actually maters and turning was hard in a speeding car unlike V.

This game may be better feature wise, but DUB Edition sh*ts on this game. And the story from MC II sh*ts on both

I've heard there was a sale on most Rockstar titles on the Xbox Marketplace, but how much is MC:LA, and is it the complete edition?

i got it for £3, my mate in Ireland for E$3.70 and as yeah its the complete edition but I dont know what that refers to...the south central dlc and cop pack are free but the extra cars etc are still around £7 each. LA:Noire was £5.

Complete Edition comes with the South Central expansion pack and it also includes the Cop Pack.. but you said they were free. That's odd.

South Central has two parts. You get the land for free, but you have to pay for the cars and I think races.

 

They also had a few car packs as well.

I deleted the extra downloads of the south central and police pack and they are still there...as expected lol. I guess they are free for the same reason there is free stuff available for RDR...in case you pick up an old copy...?

Just bought it for $3.70, when looking at the pics it look so like the actual LA and the Los Santos from GTA V.

I don't know on the X360, but they're all down on the PS3, unfortunatelly. It's still a heck of a game to play.

I only wish there still was Social Club connection so I could get the R8 :(

What if he was sick in a hospital for the past few years? What if he just got an Xbox/Playstation recently? Why must you make stupid remarks?

yeah, Ford GT is good, I had mine like Nikki's but with number 8. Very good in MP races, it was unique compared to all the DUB Lambos and S7s.

Didn't own lambos in this game, they drove weird. I had mine white with blue stripes.

wow that news is more sad than the servers being down. 

what about through save editing or something?

 

also: any tips for a newb?

i read that i should stay away from spending so i can make a million dollar deal or some shee... but does that mean all spending?

 

EDIT:

just downloaded a game save that is supposed to have it. i'll try that out if i'm desperate to give it a whirl  :D  :D

 

also: back in the day i used to play this game on dreamcast called Tokyo Xtreme Racer. veeeery similar, and i think it might have been before the midnight club series. not sure tho. great game.

Rockstar should bring back the severs for this game. Miss having car shows, hanging out, racing and stuff.
